Jersey Rifle Association [JRA]

Jersey Rifle Association [JRA]

The Jersey Rifle Association (JRA) was formed on 20 July 1861 under the Presidency of Colonel Le Couteur. The object of the Jersey National Rifle Association, as it was called, was to promote emulation in the use of the rifle.

Crabbé is now one of the finest, up to date 600 yard ranges anywhere. It is gratifying to know that the Island authorities actively take pride in and support one of Jerseys oldest and most successful associations and therefore help to promote and maintain part of its heritage the art of marksmanship.

With cooperation from the States of Jersey Public Works Committee and the help of many friends the Les Landes 900 and 1,000 yard ranges were renovated and brought into use. Since the reinstatement of Les Landes, Jersey long range shooting has gone from strength to strength, which no doubt contributed to Jerseys first ever gold medal win at the Commonwealth Games in Auckland, New Zealand 1990, won by Colin Mallett.
